Home Made Bookcase

Jeffrey made this bookcase for me to put in my studio.  Now I have a new home for some of my books too.  It feels like having old friends back in my life - I love it!

New Bag Out of Old Jeans

We are having a 50% off sale on women's jeans and pants at VIMspirations this week so I made this.  I used a teeny tiny pair of jeans, a necktie for the bottom and the strap, a button down shirt for the lining, and finished it off with some buttons and a pin. Come on over and check it out - its for sale.  Or buy a pair of jeans for $3.00 and make your own!

As artist-in-residence at VIMspirations thrift store in West Cape May (which raises money for Volunteers in Medicine) I often do the store and window displays.  Today an animal outreach center opened up next door to us, so I set up our store window in celebration of dogs and cats.  I had some paw print wrapping paper which I put down on the ledge, cut out pictures of dogs and cats from magazines and put them in some of the many photo frames that have been donated to us, found some books in our collection to add, and also included samples of my dog collarettes with copies of the article that I wrote for Bark magazine on how to make them, available as a handout for interested customers.  It was a good day, and most of us in Cape May are very fortunate to still have our homes, food, water and heat after the ravages of Hurricane Sandy, unlike so many many people just to the north of us. We will help them, and continue helping them for a long time, in whatever way that we can. Go to this link for information about evacuating with your pets.
